National Reconciliation Week (NRW) is a time for all Australians to learn about our shared histories, cultures, and achievements, and to explore how each of us can contribute to achieving reconciliation in Australia.
The dates for NRW are the same each year; 27 May to 3 June.
These dates commemorate two significant milestones in the reconciliation journey— the successful 1967 referendum, and the High Court Mabo decision respectively.

Upcoming Exhibitions Currently Open for Registration


The Coorong District Council will be hosting three exhibitions during the SALA Festival in 2022.

The SALA festival is a wonderful platform to support emerging and established artists in our region in what gets state-wide attention.

This year’s SALA theme for the Coorong Galleries will be ‘looking out/ looking in‘, focusing on the world outside, or are we looking in and imagining the world within.
